Not a giga remake HOWEVER it has similarities to other dinos.
It's special attack is a slow version of the baryonyx's tail spin
It has a distinct roar similar to a giga and yutyrannus.
It looks like a giga with spikes.
It's walk and run and kill buff are all unlike any ark dino.
(And only old ark players will recognize the eye fire the giga used to have once u fell off a cliff riding one. Luckily it doesn't kick off the rider and go berserk on everything it sees like the giga used to)
